Well some folks on here call them freedom fighters, but I call people who murder journalists in front of video cameras in the name of god criminals... so yes. There were plenty of snuff films uploaded to the archive showing everything from children kicking around a severed limb while chanting "god is great" to a man bound and blindfolded out in the desert having his throat cut and the same chanting occurs while he chokes to death on his own blood.

I always thought the jihadist movies should be segregated, for reasons other than ideology or offensiveness. Practically, they've made the OPEN SOURCE MOVIES section almost useless to browse for fun. Nearly every upload in that section has, for years, featured a turbaned, bearded man giving a sermon or speech, or the aforementioned "snuff" videos.

OPEN SOURCE used to be a place to catch random indy movie trailers, video experiments, oddball home movies, all kinds of fun little surprises that weren't on YouTube. Now those are buried amidst the less fun, war-spawned middle eastern content.

I hate censorship of any kind, so I think these movies should simply be kept in a section apart, due to their smothering number and their inflammatory, and in these repressive times in the USA, potentially illegal content.
Historians might find these enthusiastic videos of interest some day, but they sure are controversial. Only the archive's relative obscurity has prevented more unpleasant attention to this batch of uploads. A few years ago I found a video in OPEN SOURCE that featured the onscreen deaths of several US soldiers in Iraq, with funny cartoon "boing" sound effects and wacky music. The killings were replayed in slow motion, with highlighted areas to show flying body parts. There was a laugh track. Titles and voiceovers were in some kind of curlicue language. That's some weird shit that could cause complications for the archive. It shouldn't have a "chilling effect" that locks out content, but potential difficulty caused by the mere presence of the aforementioned soldier death videos is something that can't be safely ignored. Can you imagine what might happen if Bill O'Reilly or some other TV goon would seize upon this situation, become "outraged", and direct the public's attention to certain crazy war videos in OPEN SOURCE? One weeping war widow reacting, on camera, to a shot of her husband's head being blown off while cartoon music plays could change things in a bad way for the wonderful resource of archive.org.

Hi, FP ! Frankly I am not that surprised to find out creepos would target archive to use for hate propaganda !
